Rare first edition of a work concerning duels and the applicable military laws concerning them. The work is divided into four chapters. The first chapter is a treatise about duels and their various types. The second chapter is about Honor in general. The third addressed various details about duels, such as choosing seconds, etc. And the fourth chapter discusses addressing quarrels between parties. Dupleix provides abundant citations to various works of the classics, Church fathers, the Bible, and other sources in the margins. The work was republished in 1611 as an octavo. This first edition has never appeared at auction, and I could locate only three copies in United States institutions. 4to (23 x 16cm), , 272p. Duplicate preface bound in. Numerous wood-cut initials. A bit of light spotting and a couple tiny stains, but generally a quite clean copy. Bound in contemporary vellum with a reback using gilt morocco. Upper portion of covers have been cut down a bit. A few corners of leaves curled or with miniscule tear. [Cioranescu 27667]. Bookseller Inventory #
